Micro-Epsilon offers one of the broadest product ranges of high-precision displacement sensors, 2D/3D laser scanners, IR temperature sensors, colour sensors and inspection systems in Europe.
Based on Micro-Epsilon's scanCONTROL 2710 system, the high-speed BeadMonitor inspection system has been developed for the automobile industry. It detects the quality of adhesive beads as soon as they have been applied during the vehicle assembly process. The system measures the height and width of the polyurethane adhesive beads while they are being applied to the edges of the windscreen. The sensor head, which can easily be set and configured, is mounted directly behind the nozzle at the end effector of a robot. The measurement range can be set to 10, 25 or 100 mm - or even up to 600 mm.
